Jordan Reed, Jimmy Garoppolo earn PFF’s highest grades from 49ers-Jets matchup

Sep 21, 2020 at 5:54 AM--


Analytics site Pro Football Focus released its grades from Sunday's Week 2 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the New York Jets. The road-team Niners routed the home-team Jets 31-13 in a game that featured several injuries.

One of those injuries was to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who did not return to the field after halftime and was later ruled "out" with a high-ankle sprain. Before the injury, Garoppolo played well, completing 87.5 percent of his passes for 131 yards with two touchdowns and a passer rating of 140.4.

Garoppolo's 90.2 overall grade from Pro Football Focus was the second-highest from the game.

The highest overall grade from the Week 2 matchup went to tight end Jordan Reed, who saw more action due to George Kittle being out with a knee injury. Reed's 92. 1 overall grade was the best from the game.

Reed finished the game with seven receptions for 50 yards on eight targets and hauled in both of Garoppolo's scores.

The highest-graded Jets player was quarterback Sam Darnold, who earned an 86.2 mark.

Below were the five highest-graded 49ers players on offense against the Jets.

Which 49ers owned Sunday's lowest grades on both sides of the football? That would be defensive end Kentavius Street (34.3) and safety Jimmie Ward (35.4) on defense, and tight ends Charlie Woerner (36.5) and Ross Dwelley (40.4) on offense.

Kerry Hyder has been a pleasant surprise on a San Francisco 49ers defensive line that has been decimated by injuries this season.

Hyder's overall Pro Football Focus grade of 70.8 is a career-high, and the analytics site credits the defender with 21 total pressures in 134 pass-rush attempts.
